FarmOn | Frequently Asked Questions - Registration

[*Update as of October 2017: FarmOn finally added a FAQ on their website. Check it here!]

As an old FarmOner, I read a lot of the same questions asked on the forum.

So I decided to summarize those frequently asked questions here to help others understand and ease the pain of scrolling all the forum posts to look for the answer.

1. What is
     - Based on their 'About Us' page, " is a crowdfunding community where people can help farmers on their financial needs and at the same time reap rewards for their contributions. was developed by Sproads, a web publishing company based in Manila."

     In simple terms, you (a FarmOner) invest money on a crop and a real farmer will plant it and take care of it until harvest time.  Upon harvest, their agent will sell the crop and the proceeds will be divided unto you, the agent, and FarmOn.  As of the latest cycle, FarmOn has required new registrants to include in their registration their referrer's email.  (You'll know the reason as we proceed with the questions.) And the Referrer receives 1% of their referral's profit.

FarmOn's 14th Cycle | Scheduled Maintenance

I've been a FarmOner since 5th cycle.
Usually, nagko-conduct talaga ang FarmOn ng website maintenance.
But first time kong ma-experience na mag-down ang website nila sa pag-oopen ng bago nilang cycle.
This might be because of the increased interested investors na gustong magregister plus the recurring investors na magrereinvest ng kanilang funds.
Ngayon lang ako nag-open ng email kaya ngayon ko lang nakita ang notification nila ng opening for their 14th cycle yesterday around 4pm.
I realized na marami......mas dumami ang nakaabang ngayon sa pag-oopen ng new cycle ni FarmOn.
Sobrang in demand, kumbaga.
Dapat pala hindi na papetiks petiks sa paghihintay ng opening ngayon at baka maubusan ng product or mas mapatagal ang pagreceive ng contract sa dami ng nagrerequest. 😆
